Jackie Russo

Jackie Russo - Fitness has always been an important role in my life. I grew up as a gymnast turned ballerina. During my dancing career, I fell in love with bodybuilding and educating myself in all areas of fitness. I received my personal trainer certificate through ISSA. I later got a specialized certification in speed and agility, which I currently use to help young athletes enhance their athletic performance. I am also a nationally qualified NPC bikini competitor. I enjoy continually learning more in this lifestyle and look forward to sharing it with you! VIA www.jackiefit.com  (SISS)  Hi Jackie, where are you from and where are you currently spending your time?  (Jackie Russo)  I am from Pennsylvania  (SISS)  What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through Jackie Russothe same struggle?  (Jackie Russo)  Currently my main concern is family health issues but something I personally went through was a divorce. I was married for six years and I knew that it was not a healthy and happy relationship. We tried many times to work through it but in the end it was the best decision to part ways. Finding a healthy way to relieve stress like working out helped me a lot.  (SISS)  Personal Trainer | NPC Bikini Competitor | www.jackiefit.com #SISS Tell us more… who is @jackie_fitlife and what are you most proud of?  (Jackie Russo)  I am a ballet dancer and bodybuilder.
